Trapped in Thailand by the Yellow Shirts

Suvarnabhumi Airport
Nov. 28, 2008

These are the fearsome protestors who held 100,000+ tourists hostage in Thailand. The yellow-shirted cadres of the PAD took Suvarnabhumi airport a day after we arrived in Bangkok. (One day later, as we had planned at one point, and we would have been held captive in the airport for a couple of days.) It is not easy to clear 100,000+ tourists out of a country with no international airport, and we are still seeing if we can get back to the United States in the next week or so.

Update: We are all working our way out! After many long hours on the phone with airlines, and long travels, Dan made it home on Friday, Jen and Em on Sunday, me and Ellie on Monday (Dec 8), and, with a little luck, Sue, Lisa, and Katie will get home on Wednesday.
